Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Cape Atlantic Woodturners Newsletter

Volume #2, Issue
Subject: Club Minutes DATE

As a treat I have presented the Minutes exactly as received from our very humorous Secretary John Andrews with out my filtering..... Arthur

Tonight we gather to eat, drink, and perhaps have a meeting of the royal order of water buffalo wood-turners. Our own Arthur Bichsel was awarded a thank you gift for all his time and hard work over the past year putting together and presenting various discussions and workshops. We just hope his passport is still valid for that cruise around the world. We do appreciate all his efforts and hope he keeps up the work or we won't have anything to do at these damn meetings.

Fearless leader Ron Befferman has offered to give a workshop on segmented turning at his home, thousands have already signed up and since only 3 people can go at one time the wait is expected to be 2 to 3 years. Should be very informative as this is one one Ron's favorite things to do besides drink scotch and run naked through the neighborhood.

Show and tell was again a display of wizardry and magic, how do these people do this kind of work??? Doug James donated a small lidded vessel for a raffle, thanks Doug we need the money as Ron's car insurance is due soon.

Members also shared some "horror stories of turning", reminding us to be safe, take your time and wear a shield.



Those who have signed-up for the Work Shop are....

  • Betty Campbell
  • Jeff Schnell
  • Gerald Bruman
  • Shirley Hill

If you are interested in joining the group please contact Ron..
